    The Maple Society Open Science Initiative is please to present a new maple profile from Peter Gregory, with photos from Hugh Angus of Westonbirt Arboretum, Piotr Banaszczak of Rogow Arboretum, and yours truly. The correct name of this maple has been much disputed, and in 2010 when the original text was published in the newsletter was accepted as Acer robustum. Today we believe the species is most properly called Acer anhweiense. I hope you enjoy it!
